Marcus Antonsson is delighted with the way he has been welcomed into the fold by the Leeds United squad.

The Swedish striker joined the Whites from Allsvenskan side Kalmar FF earlier in the summer for a fee around the £2m mark.

When he left Sweden he was the Allsvenskan's top goalscorer and had just been handed the Player of the Month award for May.

The Championship will be a different kettle of fish for the striker to tackle, but the Leeds squad are doing all they can to help Antonsson settle in and he has dubbed his team-mates "amazing".

"It's nice. I'm enjoying every day and every day is better for me", Antonsson told LUTV.


"So I am happy.

"They are an amazing group and very good people, so everything is good."

Antonsson is one of two strikers signed by Leeds this summer, with Kemar Roofe arriving from Oxford United to introduce further competition for a spot up front into the squad.

The Swede is known to Leeds' assistant boss Pep Clotet, who worked with him at Halmstads during a spell in charge of the Swedish outfit.
